Bristol based musician/songwriter and member of the Will Gregory Moog Ensemble, Hazel Mills, has spent the last few years fronting synth post-punk four-piece Adding Machine and touring with pioneering “paper-teers” The Paper Cinema and solo artist Birdy.
Hazel has previously performed with Adrian Utley‘s (Portishead) Guitar Orchestra, Goldfrapp and Aerial theatre company Ockham’s Razor. She’s also collaborated with Roxy Music’s Andy Mackay on his solo project The Metaphors and Mark Ayres (BBC Radiophonic Workshop).
This year, she will be revealing her new project with long term collaborator TJ Allen (Bat For Lashes & Adding Machine guitarist / recording engineer) and touring in Goldfrapp’s live band for the release of their forthcoming album ‘Silver Eye’.
Inspiration over the last decade includes 50’s sci-fi, 80s drum machines, wonky analog synths, French-influenced piano and American minimalism. Both her love of art/horror films and child/teen-hood involvement in the theatre have fuelled her passion for cinematic and theatrical influenced live performance.
